Nokia and Telenor Group have joined forces to launch a new cloud-native core solution in Denmark, Norway and Sweden.

Based on Nokia AirGile, technology, including the AirFrame data centre and Cloud Packet Core, the technology aims to drive network efficiency in Scandinavia.

Nokia says the deployment will “enhance performance and reliability and drive mobile broadband service agility as Telenor prepares for the introduction of 5G.”

Hilary Mine, Head of Nordics, Baltics and Benelux for Nokia said: "Nokia is able to draw on its extensive network and services expertise to deliver a cloud-native core network that will allow Telenor to speed service delivery and take advantage of new efficiencies in terms of scaling services and expanding capacity to meet demand.

“The Nokia cloud-native core will provide a solid foundation as Telenor evolves toward 5G."

The agreement builds on Nokia’s earlier successful deployment of a cloud-native core solution for Telen’s operations in Thailand, Malaysia, Myanmar, Bangladesh and Pakistan.  

Morten Karlsen Sørby, EVP and head of Telenor Group's Scandinavia cluster, added: "The transition to 5G will be driven by use-cases, allowing us to meet the needs of existing and new markets with innovative services.

“We are pleased to leverage Nokia's technology and services capabilities to help us transform our cloud networks in our Scandinavian markets and provide us with new efficiencies and capabilities as we make that journey."
